To my girls,
I want you three to know how much I love you. When I said yes to your dad, I said yes to you girls also. I am so happy that you chose to call me mom. It was something I had thought would never happen. But I met your dad and all of that changed. One is a lonely number and five is a wonderful number for us.
Girls, this world is crazy and has even crazier definitions of what and who you should be, how you should look, and just go with the flow. I want you to know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14), created exactly how God planned. The world will tell you what it thinks is beautiful. The Word tells us what He knows is beautiful. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious (1 Peter 3:3-4).
I cannot wait to see His plans for your lives work out. Thank you for asking me to be a part of that journey.
